We were big Bubba Gump fans, so we were delighted to come across this place in Universal City L.A. Food was good, lots to choose from, a bit too much fried food for me but a great place to go with the family. The atmosphere was energetic and the staff were lively and entertaining which really made our evening. We got to keep our drinks glasses which I thought was a nice touch and the kids loved it. Would recommend for families.

Disappointed at the offerings. I grew up in Baltimore and love a good Shrimp Salad Sandwich. Not to be found on their menu.

Any eatery in the country can put a half dozen shrimp on top a Caesar salad, it's not a big deal and not worth the trip.

Too much fried food on the menu.

Too little creativity and uniqueness.

Too much emphasis on selling alcohol.

Place reminds me too much of one of the 'roadhouse' places as it has buckets on the table but in this case there's no peanut shells on the floor. Food is decent. A good average place.

Average food, more hype than value. Went only because with guests from Germany who liked Bubba Gump movie.

Very nice restaurant, energetic atmosphere , lovely food and drinks, would definately recommend. Extensive drinks menu, drinks and food came quickly and get to keep drinks glasses when you leave, which was a nice memento of the evening.

We found the food swimming in grease and even when we pointed it out all we got was an apology, not bill reduction of offer of replacement. Won't go back in a hurry!
